Your Way: Systematic Validation - Stepping Stone Process

This face-to-face workshop is from our  suite of Your Way offerings.
It is ready to be presented to your staff, at your venue. Need more information? Simply fill out our enquiry form below for a quote.

The requirement to systematically validate the RTO's assessments is detailed in the Standards for Registered Training Organisations 2015, which requires RTOs to  develop and implement a comprehensive quality review process. One that can provide proof that the RTO’s assessment practices and judgements are true and correct.

This workshop provides the opportunity for the RTO to develop a consistent and planned approach to systematic validation of assessment practices and judgements across all of the training products on its scope of registration. This will include specific approaches for determining a statistically valid sample of assessments that accurately reflect the number of students that have been assessed.

The process of systematic validation of assessments will be demonstrated through a series of practical assessment activities that enable participants to progress through pre-assessment and post-assessment practices and judgements and discover opportunities to improve.

Key topics covered in the session

By analysing the definition of validation it is possible to determine what a systematic approach to meeting the requirements of the standards actually means and can then assist the RTO to develop a user-friendly approach to validation by:

  • Determining an appropriate planned approach to validation through assessment of the ‘relative risks’ of training products on scope
  • Conducting pre-assessment validation of assessments to ensure they comply with the assessment requirements of the relevant training package or VET accredited course and satisfy the Principles of Assessment and Rules of Evidence
  • Conducting post-assessment validation of the assessment evidence and judgement made by an assessor to ensure it satisfies the Rules of Evidence
  • Determining a statistically valid sample size to enable confidence that the result is sufficiently accurate to be accepted as representative of the total population of assessments being validated
  • Determining random numbers for validation purposes; and
  • Tuning the provided systematic validation procedure and validation planning and recording forms to the requirements of the RTO
